Cybercriminals are focusing more on mobile platforms in 2019, with everything from mobile-first phishing to mobile jailbreaks dominating the news. Meanwhile, the internet of things is a new frontier for hackers looking to take advantage of devices and services that are connected to the internet.

Some of the most popular cybersecurity blogs offer multiple stories a day about the latest threats and attacks.

It is known for tackling multiple stories from many different angles and providing in-depth coverage of all aspects of computer security.

Due to the incredibly public-facing nature of their work, journalists face unique digital security threats. These include doxing campaigns against journalists (discussed in detail in CNTI’s upcoming issue primer on journalist safety) as well as the potential for their personal information to be leaked online. The combination of collaborative training and education, cultural buy-in and organizational policies is critical to promoting a culture of security in journalism.
